SUMMARY:

Conflict of interests; members of General Assembly. Prohibits a legislator from accepting compensation for employment to represent any person in an adversarial proceeding before any agency of the executive branch of government or any independent agency of state government. The bill does not prohibit, however, a legislator from receiving payment for reasonable and necessary expenses for such representation, nor does it prohibit any member from representing any person before a court or judge for compensation. The bill also prohibits a legislator from accepting employment for compensation to represent any state agency and from lobbying for two years, rather than one year, after leaving the General Assembly.
